Manchester United consider £50m swoop for Jérôme Boateng

Manchester United consider £50m swoop for Jérôme Boateng

Arsenal and Manchester United are both reportedly keen to make late respective swoops for Bayern Munich centre-back Jerome Boateng.

But, sadly for the former Monaco player, according to German publication Bild, Munich do not need another attacker in their ranks and so have asked Man United whether they would be willing to snap up revered defender Boateng in a straight up deal.

Time is running out for Jose Mourinho to secure the centre-back he wants so badly at Manchester United.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is prepared to allow Anthony Martial to leave Old Trafford for Stamford Bridge in a bid to land main target Willian. "And if we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us".

The links to Alderweireld go back well over a year, with the Belgian's impressive displays for Tottenham making him an obvious candidate to improve United's defence, while Maguire's World Cup performances have seen his status elevated enormously.

Have your say below.

Javi Martinez headed home a second-half victor to give Bayern victory in a match they dominated.


One, in the 37th minute, sailed close to the half way line and that was about as interesting as the first half got of a forgettable pre-season friendly.

The Red Devils ended up in second spot in the Premier League table last season but finished 19 points behind champions Manchester City.

Spain worldwide Martinez nodded in from a corner on 59 minutes as the German champions overcame a lacklustre display from Mourinho's side who face Leicester City at home on Friday.

"The players were, once more, brilliant, they could not have done better than what they did", added Mourinho to MUTV.

United would seek a £70 million fee for Martial and are reluctant to sell to a Premier League rival.

"The other clubs that compete with us are really strong", Mourinho said, before his side were comprehensively dominated in a 1-0 defeat by Bayern Munich.
